Ok, I have two birds with the onset of bumblefoot. No surprise with the way our land is. Plenty of grass, but still some rough areas or rocks sticking out. No swelling yet, but clearly the dark spot with the ring around it. I'm debating course of action, and wonder what the preferred choice is. Epson salt soaking with removal of plug, followed with wrapping containing antibiotic ointment is one choice. Downside you have a wound to care for and no swimming, meaning isolation from the flock. Non removal options are: Lincomycin 50 to 100 mg per bird per day for 7 to 10 days. Doxycycline 50 to 100 mg per bird per day for 7 to 10 days. Amoxicillin at the rate of 250 mg per bird per day for 10 to 14 days and in some cases 500 mg per bird per day may be necessary but give it twice per day for 10 to 14 days. Cephalexin capsules work well in soft tissue and should be given at the rate of one 250 mg capsule once or twice per day for 7 to 10 days. Baytril capsules 22.7 mg once per day for one week. What is your guys experience, and what seems to work the best. I can get all the meds at my local vet, I just have to tell them what I need. Are any of them available at the feed store? I have to check on that one.
